Abstract: -In this paper high performance level conversion flip flop has been designed. The circuit has been designed by reducing internal switching activity and glitches. The new FF has introduced with conditional discharged to reduce the power consumption. This Conditional Discharge Flip Flop (CDFF) not only reduces the internal switching activities, but also generates less glitches at the output, while maintaining by maintaining minimum delay between D-to-Q.
